A few more days and its Christmas and a Simple Stories Christmas cards to share

Hi there!!!  I'm back with a few cards to share.  Oh boy, a few more days before Christmas!!!  Actually, this year will be our 3rd Christmas here in Sydney.  What's exciting is that.... my Mum coming over to spend Christmas with us!!!  I'm so happy about it and same goes for my little boy.  He keeps on asking me, "Mum, how many days before Lola Mommy will be here?", "When are we going to pick her up in the airport?".  This will be the first time that someone in our family would come and visit us.  Hopefully, the rest of the family, would come and visit us in the future! Will be happy everytime that would happen!

Anyway, let me share to you 4 cards from the class I did with Catchy Crafts.

A Blog Update.... while doing a blog overhaul.

Hello everyone!!!  I'm back!!!  So glad to be able to blog again!  What excuse can I think of.... er..... so many things had happened between my last post and this one.  Busy with work - preparing for classes etc., busy with family plus went home to the Philippines for 6 weeks (which was fun!).

I'm doing a little blog overhaul at the moment....  as you have noticed, the background and the layout of my blog is different now.   The reason why I'm doing this is that.... I really miss blogging and perhaps going into a new- looking blog will encourage me more to do this.  On the scrapping side... I'm still scrapping and now doing cards!  So, while I'm fixing my blog, let me share these to you.....
